“Cant wait to go back”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A lovely relaxing week. Apartment was clean and had everything we needed, except ice but we've been reassured that this will be rectified for next year - so already booked to go back! Loved sharing our week with the two cocker spaniels too. Great value for money. Good location for walks.

“Perfect!”

I stayed at Casa Rey last summer, and loved it so much that I returned to this lovely apartment a few weeks ago. Due to personal circumstances, I had to change my arrival details twice, and Alick and Debbie, the apartment owners, were very flexible and accommodating with this. The apartment is so lovely, and the location is perfect - a beautiful mountain view in a peaceful location, and yet close enough to walk to the town of Competa which is a delight. If you like a traditional Spanish town, with friendly people who will speak English if you are struggling with your Spanish, this is for you. With mountain walks on your doorstep too, you have the best of both worlds. Alick and Debbie are friendly and helpful and their dogs, Timi and Maddie, are wonderful. Even though they are all on hand, you still have your privacy. I cant' wait to go back again. It is definitely a sanctuary.

Just returned from a wonderful week over the Xmas and New Year period and what a find Casa Rey is. The apartment is as advertised, infact I would say that the pictures don´t necessarily do the place justice, especially not the wonderful views. The apartment was equipped with everything you need including a few extra touches. Debbie and Alick could not have been more helpful, even booking us into restaurants for Christmas Day and New Years eve and providing a welcome bottle of Cava on arrival. They were available as little or as much as we wanted and are careful not to intrude if they don´t feel that this is what is required. We will definitely be back!

We had a great stay at Casa Rey. It is very much as the pictures show. The view from the apartment and swimming pool is amazing. The apartment is clean, tidy and comfortable and fulfilled our needs completely. Due to the absence of the owners during the day, it felt like we were getting all the benefits of a villa at a fraction of the price. Debbie and Alick are really friendly and helpful. They are full of knowledge of the area and are happy to give advice as required.
We loved Timmy and Maddie, the two golden cocker spaniels. They are really friendly and enhanced our holiday immensely. If you want the dogs around you, Debbie and Alick are happy to oblige. However, by default they are kept away.
Car parking is adequate for any competent driver.
If you are looking for a peaceful and economical holiday, with the benefits of a lovely Spanish town within 20 minutes walk or a few minutes drive, this is the perfect choice. We loved it and plan to return.

Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and you highlight perfectly what we see as our unique selling point; the benefits offered by renting a villa i.e. pool, peacefulness and relative privacy at a fraction of the cost. We hope you stay with us again. Timi and Maddie are also looking forward to welcoming you again.

Wherever you stay in and around Competa the locations are superb, once you get used to how to access them. Scary the first time.
You will be amazed by the scenery, the walks, the perfect climate and above all Competa town itself with the best selection of eateries of incredible quality and value anywhere in Europe.
Casa Rey itself has all the facilities you need for a couple . Comfy bed , good bath & shower, decent clean kitchen equipment, superb pool with fantastic views of the mountains down to the sea. Only thing missing was an ice box in the fridge to plonk cubes in my Gin.
Finally have to mention the dogs Timmi & Maddie wish we could have taken them home with us.................oh and Debbie and Alick weren't bad either !!!
